Back together again

The Hero of our tale! (with accompanying support from Inky)

It’s not easy being me….

I took a fall from a window

and went into flight

aided by the northwest wind

I went to pieces, without assistance

My head and legs went different places

I thought – “that’s it!” – and went to bits

as i thought i’d played my aces

But from the kerb and the grass

i saw a hand pass

and head and body did rise

(to my upmost surprise!)


I looked up at the lad,

as i went good from bad

and we headed back home

a new place to roam

So i sit on the shelf, thankful for health

with other model toys – oh joy of joys

enjoying my place – in my safety of space

and spending time as i can – a new lego man.

Rectify

Salford 3rd September

Reduced to a second relic in the corner

Even the technician suggested it was past its best

Computer’s do have a shelf life – but

To others – all that was needed, was a bit of

Installation and dusting down

Fresh drivers and a spot of cleaner – soon back to its

Youthful side, particularly with a new CD-Rom Drive

Rescued from the reject bin

Salford, 17th November 2017

Patchedupbear

 

Imperfection

A little dusty here or there

his coat could do with a mend

stuffing coming from a paw

this old bear needs a friend

 

See all the animals are off to the shops

apart from those that look like they’ve been dropped

now little bear, he wouldnt really mind

if the factory would be a little bit kind

 

A button for his jacket

and some thread for his paw

and a chance to be hugged

nothing less, nothing more

 

But just as factory is being shut down

a little lad is being shown round

over by bin – he sees the bear’s frown

and little bears luck is turned around

 

For in days to come, what fun there will be!

With new tops and buttons – and teddy bears teas…

He may be imperfect – said the boy as he roamed

but he’s my favorite bear – as they head off for home!

The patient returns

People might be wondering where i’ve been the last few days.

DSC00386

It isn’t the fact i’ve fallen out with facebook or indeed, wordpress (NOOOO! 🙂 ) – my Trusty HP laptop had some serious palpitations in the last 7 days.

As a result, it spent some time in the lab at PC World in Manchester

Managed to keep up via the Android tablet  (pictured) and phone on twitter, but decided to give my laptop a rest during this phase of writing.

The upside ? A much improved patient – not as groggy as the last few weeks

The downside…having to watch windows update install my operating system again (Arrgh!)

UPDATE: Sunday 8th May

The patient is back – in his usual spot.

Old Red (??? must stop calling it that – Old Silver will get jealous!!!) is back on the Desk , and Running Windows 10 – though I had to go through one lengthy process to get it there

There’s now a link to wordpress on my desktop (Nice touch)
